Confront Hateby donating to Jewish Museum Milwaukee's Year End Campaign

Jewish Museum Milwaukee highlights historical events to build bridges between diverse groups, makes contemporary connections to our shared past, and confronts hate during a time of increasing antisemitic and racist incidents in our nation.

Please help the Jewish Museum Milwaukee deepen its IMPACT in the Milwaukee community and beyond with a generous year-end contribution. Your gift will be matched dollar for dollar with a $25,000 CHALLENGE GRANT by a generous donor.
